2 and $1,000

The bad: In efforts to stay accountable with the 32 in 90 challenge, I’m sad to say I gained two pounds. Not earth shattering but it is a step backwards.

The good: Most likely those two pounds are due to all the taste eating I was doing for a local recipe contest which I won! Grand prize - $1,000 gift card to Walmart!! Mr. M found it via the Internet and it was hosted on Facebook. When I realized two days before the contest ended that only 20 (20!) people had entered, I thought it couldn’t hurt to try. So I sent my recipe in along with a photo of the dinner. They posted it on Facebook and the judging was done by the amount of likes you received. A few e-mails to family, friends and sorority sisters and my little recipe found itself in first place. I think Mr. M is more excited about it than I am but we are using the gift card as our grocery money for the next 8 months. It was all in God’s work. Last week, I was so upset that we were halting our snowball due to a new roof and he provided. We’re getting back on track to attack this debt!
